From Gabriola Island, nationally known CBC broadcaster Shelagh Rogers contributed the foreword to Nobody's Mother: Life Without Kids (Touchwood, 2006), edited by Lynne Van Luven. She wrote: "There are a lot of things I feel I am grasping at last: being comfortable in my own skin, beginning to feel oddly sexy at a time when Germaine Greer says women become invisible to society. I am excited about what the next act will bring. There's some mystery to it. But one thing I know for sure: it will not bring children I bear myself. And finally, I am happy with that."
